  1. The gift that keeps on giving

    HP5 Plus in its 120 size for medium format pushed to 1600 ASA, developed in stock ID11 has just produced for me the most incredible images taken hand-held, under challenging light conditions. Due to the sheer size of the negatives any graininess that might be noticeable in 35mm fades into insignificance. Any increase in contrast is easily compensated for at the printing stage.

    Used at its rated speed of 400, 120 HP5+ images have a certain zing. If you've only ever used 35mm HP5+ before, be prepared for a pleasant surprise.
  2. There’s much more to HP5 PLUS than meets the eye – something that regular shooters of this film will be more than aware of...

    It is my opinion that some photographers mistakenly regard ILFORD HP5 PLUS and its predecessors to be a somewhat cheaper, lower quality response to Kodak’s Tri-X. I wrote a review that aims to demonstrate that this assumption simply isn’t the case: http://emulsive.org/reviews/film-reviews/ilford-film-reviews/ilford-hp5-plus-in-35mm-120-and-sheet-formats
